3D Printing

Use our 3D printer without even leaving home! Email us the 3D model in .stl file format. Once we’ve checked your print to make sure it will fit on one of our printers we’ll send you an email with our available filament colors for that printer and where you our in our print queue. Once our print is finished we’ll email you to let you know when it can be picked up.

This service is limited to C. H. Booth Library cardholders only. Prints must be completed in 6 hours. Your print may be resized to fit this time limit. If your design must be resized, library staff will let you know before printing.

Cost of printing: The first 2 hours are free. It is $2 per hour after.

Find ready-to-print files at Thingiverse. You can find all sorts of fun things to print online, from keychains to household tools, decorations to replacement parts, and more!

Design your own 3D models at TinkerCAD. TinkerCAD is free and offers tutorials to get you started.

Note: Library staff are unable to assist with the designing of 3D models. The library is not responsible for the quality of your design.
